Description

Welcome to Sharing Shalom! Thank you for watching! I created this channel as a safe space for Jewish people and allies to discuss global, national, local and personal Anti-Semitism and what it is like to be an imperfect minority. Forgive me for requiring viewers to be followers, however due to the sensitive content it is a safety measure. It does not cost anything and XOTV does not use or track any of your data.

I agree and fear everything you talk about here. Just last year in W Seattle anti semetic slander was spray painted on someone’s garage. I don’t see that being reported on the local news?! I sent emails to every news station. No response. Nothing. And although I won’t deny being Jewish, like you, I don’t willingly talk about it. I’m scared. Most people I know are not anti-semetic. Just uneducated. A good friend of mine once made a comment, “oh isn’t Mercer Island where all the Jews live!” Her boyfriend wanted to push her out of the car he was so mortified. I’m annoyed in hindsight that I didn’t squash her comment with a kind and educated response. But this is becoming the norm. And our national leaders are allowing it to happen. Look at England and their Parliament. I applaud you speaking out. I support your efforts and movement.

Thank you so much for watching and for taking the time to comment. I had an incident last week where I should have educated someone and didn’t. She literally sat in my living room and rattled off Jewish stereotypes. I will need to take the time to repair my mistake. Sometimes it is hard when we’re so dumbfounded. Please share the video with others you think will appreciate it. If we don’t already know each other, please reach out at shalom@sharingshalom.com so we can get connected.

So beautifully made and informative! So proud to support you and your community. It is heartbreaking that in 2019 people of faith are made to hide who they are because of ignorance and blind hatred. Thank you for shedding some light on who you really are, not how you have been portrayed.
